“Good value ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Maria's had a full house on a Sunday night. The green chili stew was great. The adovada with chicken was dry. The salsa was not great. Margarita's were good. Sopapillas were very tasty. I would go back.

“Good New Mexican Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This place came highly recommended. The atmosphere was great and even though I did not have one, they say the margaritas are the best. I thought the food was good but the enchiladas just weren't what I expected pretty mushy. The beans and rice were very good. There are lots of places in Santa Fe I would probably choose over Maria's.

“Carne Adovada and Margaritas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had a fantastic dinner here, we split the carne adovada and it was delicious. The queso was also really good. We each had two margaritas....the margarita list was so overwhelming but they were all great!

“Best margaritas in Santa Fe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Maria's is a place we go back to again and again, and also a place we always take visitors ... All of whom ask to return there on subsequent visits. The food is great New Mexican, from the basic tacos and relents to wonderful carne adovada. And the service is friendly and happy. There is a reason it has been here for decades.

“Ok food great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Maria is an icon I think because of the service not the food. Not a huge variety on the menu, ordered the veggie tamales (one of Maria's specialities) and they were good but the sides were really salty and not very taste. I think they have an over use of sodium in their recipes things tasted salty. I thought the food was mild not too spicy.
